Can't use refilled ink cartridge

When I worked designing printers we were told "our profit margin on selling ink is higher than it is for the US Treasury to print quarters".  This is the real reason why HP won't let you use refilled ink.  The answers HP dishes about dried out heads or damage due to no ink etc. is BS.  They also don't disclose their dirty little secret before its too late.  ie. after you bought the printer and then run out of ink.


Because of this I willl NEVER buy another HP printer.  And.  I will devote significant engineering effort into figuring out how to hack HP's  unethical blocking of refilled ink cartridges.  AND post it everywhere I can.  My goal is to have HP loose at least 1000 times as much money as they make forcing me into buying their ink.


Let the battle begin!


Look for Youtube, facebook, and ???

Re: Can't use refilled ink cartridge

Again good luck since refilled cartridges work just fine as long as it is done right and the printer can read the chip.  Thousands do it every day.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

Hi Mark We,



Can we connect through Facebook? I am sick of HP's predatory secret policies that hurt consumers because HP refused to inform consumers properly.  It has come to the point where i just want to take a bat to my normal functioning printer because of HP's tricky ink polices. [edited]
